ClosedGrant Opened: 1st of June 2022 Closed: 29th of June 2022 Value: Up to $50,000 Run By: Westpac Further Information: https://www.westpac.com.au/about-westpac/our-foundations/westpac-foundation/grants/inclusive-employment-grants/

The Inclusive Employment Program is designed to support small and local community organisations and social enterprises that are creating jobs and training opportunities for individuals and communities experiencing disadvantage.

The grants seek to support innovative, collaborative and place-based approaches by organisations building a more inclusive economy and resilient communities in response to the significant impacts across Australia of COVID, the changing nature of work, and climate change.

Up to 40 two-year grants of $50K will focus on building the capacity of community organisations and social enterprises to generate meaningful employment outcomes, as well as increase their sustainability, and potential to scale for greater impact in priority areas such as:

  • Supporting organisations in rural and regional communities to create greater economic diversification.
  • Jobs and skills in the green economy and other emerging and growth industries such as technology and the care economy.
  • Programs that build job-ready skills and career pathways for people overcoming barriers to work.
  • First Nations enterprises that support local economic participation and connection to country.

Grant partners will also receive non-financial support including being matched with a Westpac Community Ambassador to help access a broad range of networking, leadership, business strategy, governance and financial capability programs.

The two-year grant will also be the subject of an impact study and grant partners will be supported to build their capacity to measure and report on a range of key inclusive and sustainable employment outcomes.
